Not Just Any Sex Party. An ’80s Sex Party.

Looks Like Summer’s Finally Hitting Its Stride

By Hadley Tomicki

Listen Up. No, Seriously, Listen Up.
FROM PERKS

Listen Up. No, Seriously, Listen Up.

Because we found you a collection of first-class wireless and ear-in headphones from the Swedish music-lovers over at VAIN STHLM. They're equipped with top-of-the-line audio technology, built for comfort and boast the clean yet definitive look you've come to expect from Scandinavian things. All that's left for you to do is press play. And stop. You'll probably have to press stop at some point, too.

Look, Up in the Sky... It’s Crudo and DJs
DREAM A LITTLE DREAM

Look, Up in the Sky... It’s Crudo and DJs

Dream Hollywood just opened the Highlight Room. It’s an outdoor rooftop lounge for poolside hijinks by day, Hamachi crudo, brick-oven chicken, ridiculous views and dancing to DJs by night. Which just about covers all of the times.

Friday
A Secret Melrose Patio for Ribs and Sazeracs
JEAN STREETS

A Secret Melrose Patio for Ribs and Sazeracs

Lemongrass ribs. BBQ pork agnolotti. Pear brandy Sazeracs. These are the things you’ll discover at Barbara Jean, Jason Fullilove’s patio restaurant accessed by walking through Melrose Umbrella Co. Shortly thereafter, you may find yourself eating them.

Saturday
Drink Like a Bunch of Ancient Europeans Drank
GUESS WHO’S BACCHUS

Drink Like a Bunch of Ancient Europeans Drank

If you want to drink like the ancients, you’ll need the Getty’s help. This weekend, the museum will offer lectures on the history of fermented beverages in ancient Europe. And it’s followed by a tasting of beers made from early ingredients. Sounds totally worth the lecture part.

LET’S GET PHYSICAL

Just Your Typical ’80s-Themed Sex Party

Remember the ’80s? The Rubik’s Cube? The wanton sex parties backed by synth-pop? If you missed that last one, catch up at Kinky Couch, an erotic soiree coming to a secret Beverly Hills location. And it’s okay, you had a Rubik’s Cube to solve.

July 15, 10pm-3am, $400-$3,000, Kinky Couch, Beverly Hills location revealed with ticket purchase, 310-435-9217

Monday
Top Gun: Better With a View. And Drinking.
REEL TALK

Top Gun: Better With a View. And Drinking.

L.P. has more rooftop than it’s been letting on. And now it’s using that extra space to show you and your friends movies like Goodfellas and Top Gun in the open air on a huge screen. Plus, you can get cocktails. Meaning, you’ll get cocktails.

What Else Is New

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
